Subcommittee Descriptions

Data Management Subcommittee

  • The REI collects energy production data from most of its renewable energy projects. The process of data collection, storage, display, and analysis is essential to the functioning of the REI and our ability to make decisions about how to maintain current projects and how to most effectively allocate funding towards new ones. We are currently developing an in-house energy production dashboard. We need help continuing the dashboard development project, and also with day to day data monitoring to ensure that our systems are working properly.
